This is located down an alley in Chinatown. We had to ask for directions. It is a tiny little hole in the wall, but they make the best fortune cookies I ever tasted. Very flavorful and not at all like the hard and slightly stale...More

It is kind of hard to find and is in an alley. It is a small shop made up of 2 ladies making fortune cookies. There is another lady who gives samples and is the cashier who was friendly. There was also a man who...More

It's a little hard to find (down Ross Alley), but my daughter and I were glad we did. When we arrived, there were only a handful of people there, so we were able to easily get in and watch them make the cookies. The lady...More

Down a back alley between Stockton St. and Grant Avenue, this small shop/factory is worth the search to sample some delicious fortune cookies (in three flavors), buy a bag of your favorite type, and to have some cookies made with your custom message placed inside....More

We loved this as an end to our CityGuides tour in Chinatown. Yummy samples and a chance to take home authentic fortune cookies. Amazing to watch them make these.

We found this shop through Trip Advisor. It was a nice way to see China Town. Although it was a small space, it was fun to see how the fortune cookies were made. They offered free samples of the rejects. We bought a bagful to...More

Our tour guide took us to the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory located in the heart of Chinatown. It's sort of a little "hole-in-the-wall", but I mean that it the best way possible. I love little mom and pop joints and this didn't disappoint. You...More

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs

dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who
gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,
